No matter the amount of planning we put in place, every journey and endeavor is hardly ever straightforward. Sometimes a reroute is necessary in order to find one’s true path and calling or to procure time to put things in perspective.
Going off course is not to be equated with failure, as long as there is a plan established to get back on course, or guide you through the new terrain. Exposure to a new environment can prove to open up newer ways of thinking and getting us out of a rut.
So while detours and layovers may be part of our journey, it is up to us to assess the situation, recalculate, and take the necessary steps to move forward and reach the destination.
